Teaching About Political Maps

Are you interested in helping your students learn more about geography? One thing you will probably do is teach them about different kinds of maps. Students will frequently encounter political maps as they study different aspects of geography, so it is worth dwelling on this kind of map as part of your instruction.

When you teach students about political maps, you may want to incorporate activities into your teaching. Activities help students learn in a hands-on way and work from their strengths to synthesize new knowledge and information. Learning by doing activities will help students stay engaged in their work and remember what they have learned.

The activities in this lesson will give students with a variety of strengths more insight into working with political maps.
